For women, after age 20 the fat gradually takes over what used to be glandular matter in the breasts. This can cause the breasts to appearing deflated.

Deflated and sagging breasts following significant weight loss can be addressed in one of several different ways.

With both men and women, losing large amounts of weight can result in saggy breasts. When a person loses weight the fat tissue in the breasts decreases. The skin stays as large as it was when the person weighed more, but the fat that used to fill up the skin is now gone. The result is often sagging breasts.

Breast Contouring For Women

For women, breast implants can be used to fill up the space where fat used to be. For some women having breast augmentation surgery is all that’s necessary.

Often, however, either along with or instead of breast implants — or for women who do not need or want breast implants — Dr. Slenkovich recommends one of the following breast lift procedures:

If the breasts don’t sag too severely, Dr. Slenkovich can perform a circumareolar breast lift procedure. This requires only an incision around the areola.

If the breasts sag a moderate amount Dr. Slenkovich can add to the circumareolar procedure an incision from the areola to the base of the breast for a more substantial breast lift that will heighten the nipple location and provide a youthful, perky appearance.

If the breasts sag severely (“ptotic breasts”) Dr. Slenkovich normally recommends an anchor-type incision in addition to the above techniques to best achieve the appearance you desire with your breast enhancement following your weight loss.

Which surgery is most appropriate depends on how much sagging, as well as the amount of extra skin there is with the breasts. For additional information call us or send us a confidential e-mail to schedule a breast surgery consultation today.

Chest Contouring For Men

For men, sometimes liposuction will be all that is necessary. Three to six months after the liposuction, depending on the results, any additional loose skin can be surgically removed. After a few months the skin sometimes shrinks, rendering any more plastic surgery unnecessary. An exciting procedure Dr. Slenkovich performs for some men involves removing excess skin from both the breast area and the upper arms (brachioplasty) at the same time. The resulting scar is then confined to the armpit. This is great option for men who have hair on their chests and don’t want a scar on the chest area.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION View Update Virtual Consultation



Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
